Self-sustaining populations of largemouth bass, bluegill sunfish, and black crappie are the main fishing draws at Gunlock Reservoir. Green sunfish and black bullhead are also common, but less popular. Gunlock is known to produce trophy largemouth bass up to six pounds in weight. Bluegill and crappie are great targets for kids. As the summer continues and temperatures soar over 100 degrees, night fishing becomes more popular. Ned rigs and drop shots are great for those deep, hard to reach places.

Access Info

Gunlock Reservoir was treated with rotenone in 2015 to remove illegally introduced smallmouth bass  which pose a serious threat to native fish in the Virgin and Santa Clara rivers. We have begun re-stocking largemouth bass, bluegill, and crappie, but fishing opportunities will be limited for 2-3 years while these populations establish. Recent surveys have found that fish stocked in 2016 spawned and the populations are building, though most fish are still very small (4-6 inches)
